Protest at Diamonds International


There was protest action by the Antigua Trades and Labor Union (AT&LU) at Diamonds International in Heritage Quay this morning.

Antigua News Room understands that the Shop Steward for the workers of Diamonds International, Geraldine Thomas, was not allowed the time to attend the 78th Delegates Conference of the labor union by her employer.

In solidarity with their comrade, the other members of the AT&LU left the delegates conference and went down to the Heritage Quay store to demonstrate.

Thomas has been with the company for nine years and has served as Shop Steward for her fellow workers for one.

More on this story to come.

  1. “…prevented…from attending…” You mean the3 employer gagged and bound him? Chained him to the ground? Broke his limbs to keep him from moving?

  2. So why aren’t they protesting the 8 indians that were brought in to work in the stores at Heritage Quay and Redcliffe Quay…… This is whst happens when politics gets thrown into business….. These 8 persons were given work permits by our Government!!! There are Barbudans here that need jobs, Antiguans that need Jobs…… Really Minister of Labour?? These indians aren’t specialists they are salesmen….. Protest that too!!!!
